Thanks Dale, I commented out the ABINARY entries in the Ascend dictionary
and the Livingston Radius did indeed fire up happilly.

I'm looking at the two dictionaries and have a couple of minor questions. I
notice that Ascend has changed a lot of the attributes. For example the
RADIUS spec (which I assume Livingston follows) has a 'Service-Type'
attribute while Ascend has apparently chosen to use 'User-Service'

While the functionality of these attributes is the same for their respective
terminal servers, is there any problem sending the Ascend defined
'User-Service' attribute to a Livingston Portmaster as part of a users
Radius profile ? I'm assuming that all of these attributes are actually
passed as integer's etc but in that respect do they match ?
